    Couple of reasons the "Rooney Rule is good for blacks. #1 reason) Sometimes a black coach may not be considered for the job but because of the rule he is given an interview. His interview may wow the team so much he gets the job. They may have had no idea how good the guy was until he impressed in the interview. Reason #2 is it gives the candidate practice interviewing. That matters. Whether you believe it or not it does. The candidate is able to get feedback from the potential team after the selection process is over and the candidate can be better prepared for his next opportunity. There are other reasons the rule is beneficial some more obvious than others. Truth is it has helped and will continue to benefit aspiring black coaches. If you agree or disagree with the premise they need or deserve this advantage is another discussion altogether but it is beneficial. If not, why would the black coaches tolorate this?

    More minority coaches now then there were before the rule. Thinly vailed racism in some comments here.
